This Christmas, be your own true love and give yourself the gift of greater financial freedom. Can you commit to investing just 17 minutes a day for 13 days during the festive season?
If so, grab a pen and paper, set a timer and:
a) Re-read one of our blogs. This should only take 3-4 minutes. We have listed them below with links to make things easy.
b) With the rest of the time (13-14 minutes), think about what you could do to improve your financial position. Jot your ideas down, and if it’s something simple, do it now!
On the final day, spend your 17 minutes reviewing your notes and ideas and decide which one/s you are going to take forward.
